Since my migration from ExpressionEngine to WordPress, my site traffic has fallen off by something between 60 and 75 percent. I want to attribute this to the change in my feed address, but if I’m being honest, I should also note that the distinct downturn coincided with my beginning to post on a relatively regular basis again. So perhaps I’ve driven my own audience away.
But if I’m going to attempt some kind of self-charity in this, and assume that there’s a technological reason for the downturn (rather than that I just suck), I’m not sure what to do about it. Perhaps I can persuade WordPress to publish a second feed at one of the old feed addresses, just to let folks know I’m still here?
Or perhaps I just shouldn’t worry about it at all, and adopt a more “if you write it, they will come” attitude. As though I’ve been given a chance to start over almost entirely, but with the benefit of experience this time.
